Very unexpected and quaint spot. A tea room and a restaurant, makes sense and very unique. We would eat there again for sure. Great customer service and food.

My sister and I recently stopped at Glenn's on our return trip between Edmonton and Calgary. The selection of teas is world class. There is an excellent description of each tea on the menu. For food I had the all day breakfast special. This was bacon, eggs and hash browns and found it very good value and excellent basic food.... More

Great location to meet friends from other parts of Alberta. Affordable and delicious down home food. Watch out for the jumbo sized cinnamon buns - my husband and I shared one and it was plenty for both of us!

Had the special , the food was tasty but if you want toast with special is extra so the special is not a great special. The restaurant is always clean and service is good but have found they have gotten pricey so do not go very often anymore

After being so highly recommended to me, I was disappointed, but not all was bad. I went there for supper, and for the tea. The woman who was my server admitted to only being on staff for about a month, and it showed. She didn't know the menu and didn't know anything about tea with the excuse 'well, I'm not... More

On Gasoline Alley in Red Deer, on the highway, it's unmistakable with the giant tea pot, There used to be a tea pot collection to make anyone jealous, I didn't see it this time around. However, the tea is always well made, well served (with a cute little tea biscuit to dunk, or not depending on your upbringing and view... More

The service was a little lack, and the atmosphere. .a little out-dated. But the food was good, like something you would eat at home. It's a comfortable environment though and the prices are great, tastyfood and large portions. Remember no alcohol is served here and that's okay it's a good time to try one of the hundreds of teas available
